The Dawn of Innovation: The First American Industrial Revolution by Charles R. Morris


in the thirty years after the Civil conflict, the U.S. blew through nice Britain to turn into the goodest economic energy in global historical past. the most a well-known period in historical past, whilst titans like Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and J.P. Morgan walked the earth.

but as Charles R. Morris presentations us, the platform for that impressive enlargement spurt was once built within the first part of the century. by using the 1820s, the us was once already the world’s most efficient manufacturer, and the most intensely commercialized society in historical past. The conflict of 1812 jumpstarted the good New England cotton turbines, the iron hearts in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, and the forges across the nice Lakes. in the decade after the conflict, the Midentitywest was once opened through entrepreneurs. on this superbly illustrated book, Morris paints a vividentity landscape of a brand new country buzzing with the work of creation. He also points out the parallels and variations within the 19th century the usn/British standoff and that among China and the us today.
